Since both Funky Dung and Jerry have recently entered the world of parenthood, I thought it fitting that my first guest post for this blog should discuss parenthood – specifically, attitudes toward parenthood in different religious groups.
“I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world–that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically. Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they’re born. That to me is the greatest sin — that people can — can commit…” Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, during an interview with Mike Wallace.
“Given my background, the Catholic idea that we are always to treat the sexual act with awe and respect, so much so that we should simply abstain if we are opposed to its life-giving potential, was a revolutionary message. Being able to consider honestly when life begins, to open my heart and mind to the wonder and dignity of even the tiniest of my fellow human beings, was not fully possible for me until I understood the nature of the act that creates these little lives in the first place.” Jennifer Fulwiler, she converted to Catholicism from atheism in 2007
While reading the First Things blog, I was struck by the contrast between the two above quotes. May Catholics, Protestants, other religious, and Atheists be converted by the new Evangelization to a culture of Life. John Paul the Great pray for us.
The abortion debate will go nowhere until we all revisit the consequences of using the contraception poison that M. Sanger pushed in her eugenic agenda.
Great, so not only can I not grow a beard, but I’m at greater risk for a stroke because of it. Yay. :/
Men Who Shave More, Live More
By Jennifer Warner
“A clean-shaven face may be the sign of a happy and healthy man. A new study suggests that men who don’t shave daily have fewer orgasms and are more likely to suffer a stroke than stubble-free men”
Here's YET ANOTHER article supporting natural law and Catholic teaching (see my archives for more).
"LONDON (Reuters) – Forget forbidden flings and passionate one night stands, it's married women who enjoy the best sex."
"Two thirds of married women say the best sex they've had is with their husband, compared to 13 percent who say it was when they were single and just 9 percent when having an affair, a survey by British health magazine Top Sante said."
"'This survey turns on its head the idea that the best sex is when we are footloose, fancy free and single,' Juliette Kellow, Top Sante's editor, said."
